A NOTE ON INSTALLATION
Install the Compact Disc player on a level, vibration-
free surface. (Severe vibration, or operation in a
tilted position, may cause the player to mis-track.)
The player may be stacked with other stereo
components, as long as there is adequate
ventilation around it.
If the player is placed in close proximity to a radio
tuner (AM or FM), a VCR, or a television set, the
operation of its digital circuits may produce static
that would interfere with reception of weak
broadcast signals. If this occurs, move the CD
player away from other devices or switch it off when
viewing or listening to broadcasts.
